"Blood & Feathers — Live at the Café Carlyle" will be available in music stores beginning Nov. 8. Lemper's latest act was recorded live at the famed Carlyle Feb. 24 and 25, 2005. Lemper was backed by Vana Gierig on piano, Mark Lambert on guitar, Gregory Jones on bass and Todd Turkisher on drums. The DVD has a running time of one hour and 27 minutes.
About her "Blood & Feathers" evening, Lemper said at the time, "[Audiences] should prepare to be taken on a ride through the joints of Berlin, Paris and New York to catch the spirits of poets and provocateurs, to hear stories between war and peace, to move from temptation to serenity, all decorated with blood and feathers! . . . Pirate Jenny will meet Edith Piaf and both will tell stories of lost love, betrayal, politics and revenge in the year 2005 — the scene is New York, the club is glamorous, but the stories are true!"
